What city was jesse james killed in?
St Joseph, MO Jesse James was apparently shot and killed at 1318 Lafayette St. in St. Joseph, Missouri, on April 3, 1882. He and his gang had rented a house there as a hideout, and his associate Bob Ford allegedly shot him in hopes of collecting a $5000 bounty solicited by the governor of Missouri. Rumors that the body was misidentified (that James had faked his death) continued for several years. Ford and his brother Charley were tried, convicted, and just as quickly pardoned, but had to flee the state.
